MANKATO, Minn. (Oct. 23, 2014) – A man on leave from the Air Force thought it would be funny to give a police officer the age-old schoolyard treatment known as a “wet Willy.”
Turns out it wasn’t such a good idea—and the officer certainly wasn’t laughing. Riley Swearingen, 24, pleaded guilty to disruptive intoxication this week, according to the Mankato Free Press.
Swearingen was out drinking early Saturday when he encountered a police sergeant, licked both pointer fingers and then stuck them in the officer’s ears.
That’s right—it’s was the infamous double wet Willy.
The officer had been on the “drunk bus” talking to the driver when Swearingen boarded around 2:20 a.m. after downtown bars had closed.
After realizing what happened, the officer arrested Swearingen, who was on leave from a U.S. Air Force base in Goldsboro, N.C.
Swearingen spent three days in jail. He was charged with assaulting a police officer with bodily fluids–a felony. His blood alcohol content was 0.18 at the time of the incident, police said.
He apologized to a judge on Monday and agreed to plead guilty to disruptive intoxication in order to avoid the felony assault charge. He also paid $77 in court costs and was given credit for time served while in jail.
Of course, the folks on FOX59 Morning News couldn’t resist having some fun with the story:
